thrilling? tedious is more accurate
I find it funny that he can speak about “the importance of women” but then cast a known abuser as a major role in his movie. A. Hammer comes from a long line of abusers and has proven to be one himself. Gross.
I think it’s pretty obvious the cops only do things or care when someone dies. That’s the point. When DV or r*pe happens that’s what it looks like.
She is so annoying. 👀
I really wish it didn’t take almost 20 minutes to talk about Avatar…
are people being killed by a bear supposed to be funny?
Obtaining accurate data from observation satellites is a valuable service for scientific centers that are engaged in environmental protection https://dragonflyaerospace.com/ The stability of all living things on the planet depends on the forecasts of weather and protection from negative impact, which brings modern production and spontaneous phenomena.
Amanda is consistently terrible and I've never once listened to an episode wishing she somehow participated. She makes everything worse and has awful opinions.
Good lord, I hope they please stop having Adam Nayman on the podcast. What a miserable joyless person. I really feel bad for his inability to enjoy anything ever.
You stupid cunt. The law in Florida protects children against leftist perverts like yourself. Sexual indoctrination of children is a crime punishable by death. I hope someone kills you soon you fucking piece of shit.
popular art us still art, but regardless if how emotionally manipulative (and effective) Spider-Man NWH, it doesn't belong in any best picture conversation. It doesn't do anything that actual Oscar winner Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse didnt already fo better. Let the Marvel movies run the table at the MTV and People's Choice award shows. Let the grown ups have the Oscars. please. Do it for Marty!
Best Draft Ever!!
What about the documentary of Muscle Shoals?
Seriously? no one picked Hitchcock's "Notorious"? Easily the best spy movie
Short answer: Obviously, yes. Who wants to pay upwards of $10 a person (double that if you visit the concession stand) to watch a movie with a bunch of strangers who may or may not talk through important scenes, text the whole time, or just otherwise mess with your experience entirely?? You're better off shelling out the $20 to catch the movie on VOD in the comfort of your own home, where you can eat/drink whatever you please. You have a perfect view of the screen; you can pause or rewind on a whim...
Cool insight though Edgar's audio quality is unfortunately shit
I don’t understand the lack of show notes! Write you films that are mentioned.
These two are pathetic. Please never leave your houses.
